Walking Through “The District”

Posted on: Jun 23

Back in March, we at Art Enables found ourselves closing our doors to the public just before the would-be openings of three new exhibitions: “Animalium” (works by Art Enables resident artists), “AMPLIFY” (paintings by Corinne Davidov) and “The District” (a group show featuring visiting artists alongside those from Art Enables). It has been our hope throughout our COVID-19-induced closure that by extending these shows, we’d be able to re-open in time to share the work of these talented artists with you in person. Now, at the beginning of our summer season, we regret that this will not be possible for most of the exhibitions. However, we continue to be extremely grateful to our visiting artists for contributing their work.

As we de-install “The District,” we’re pleased to share installation views of the show as well as a (low budget!) video walk-through. You can read more about the exhibition and artists below.  See the exhibition archive page and/or video for a closer look at each of the works.

The District

Since its founding in 1970, Washington, DC, has existed at the heart of American politics and the American dream. Art Enables touches on DC’s vibrant history in “The District,” an exhibition featuring scenes of local DC hot spots, monuments, historical figures, and themes of politics and culture. Resident artists from Art Enables join artists from around the DC metro-area to showcase their reflections on the nation’s capital through painting, drawing, photography, and mixed media works.

Exhibiting artists include: Guglielmo Botter, Patricia Figliola, Michael Dax Iacovone, Maiya Lonesome, George Lorio, Corinne McAuley, Roshni Sandhlla, Carol Williams, Kimo Williams, Andrew Wohl, and Art Enables artists Jacqueline Coleman, Michael Haynes, Paul Lewis, Charles Meissner, and Shawn Payne.
